I'd love to get some news from outside the West, get some insight on the prevailing attitudes and implicit biases that are baked into the Western perspective.But you really can't. Anything from Russia and China is so heavily biased, if not explicitly government propaganda, that it's useless. I'm sure there's scholarly work out there, but it's not exactly accessible.
I think that slur is probably archaic at this point. Most American wouldn't even know what group it was referenced to.

You put up with some stuff that you don't like because the other option is worse.I'm completely resigned to the...
He explicitly said that he'd appoint a special prosecutor to bring charges against her. That's not a throwaway line. Using your political power to prosecute rivals is not something that's done in the United States.We're not electing Trump dictator, so clearly his powers have limits. It's still discouraging to hear a Presidential candidate have such little respect for the legal process, especially from supposed party of the Constitution and the "rule of law".
I think greger is having a stroke. Someone should check on him.
I thought it was because three million more people voted for her than Bernie
